Manning, entering his 6th year in the NFL, returns to his roots in Texas. As a native of Coriscana, TX, he will be welcomed not only as a great addition to the Texans organization but also as a fellow Texan.
Manning’s contract stipulates that he will receive $20 million over four years including $9 guaranteed and $11.5 million over the first two years.
The addition of Manning and Joseph solidifies the Texans backfield and should make for a great defensive combination against the potent Peyton Manning. The Texans should expect solid play out of both of these players. While neither of them are considered to be top-tier players, their impact on the defensive side of the ball will be exceptional.
